FAN of the MONTH – Susan

Thank you Susan for being such a great reader! I know you publish to your blog regularly and your comments helped so much during the SocialBook event for The Loft. I’ve got a little something in the mail to you, enjoy!

I have been an avid reader my whole life. I started The Book Bag blog in 2009 for work and it morphed into a place for me to share my thoughts about the books I read. I have ‘met’ so many wonderful authors and book people through my blog and I absolutely love my reading and blogging life! I have worked in libraries for over 23 years and love that I get paid to be around books.

My husband and I celebrated 42 years of marriage this September. We have a big family and seven grandchildren who keep us very busy, but I love it all.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
